Probably cause xi shocks suck compared to i sport package. I'm going bilstein route also for my xi.

I've got to be honest, my 19's don't look bad on stock height. Now I'm questioning whether or not I should go forward with the bilstein plus sport springs. I don't want to make the car more uncomfortable. I like a nice comfy ride.

Quick cell phone pics to show what I mean:

They are one of the best dual-personality shocks on the market. These shocks get rid of ALL of that floaty feeling, way less dive when braking, cornering or accelerating --- no doubt helped by the i-sport springs lower center of gravity and slightly increased spring rate. They definitely ride better than stock and soak up bumps with ease. If you haven't already, ditch the runflat tires too.
Do you know the part number for the i sport springs? I have a 09 335xi I would be throwing them on.
